NEW YORK, May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Entertainment and lifestyle platform Blingby is the latest to announce a successful first round of fundraising from investors. The fast developing company found its start in 2014 when President, CEO and Co-Founder Marcia Favale and CDO and Co-founder Rob Stanicic came together to create a unique, experience-rich online platform for video lovers.
"We knew there was a strong potential market for Internet users wanting somehow to live the experience of the videos they see, from music videos to movie trailers to interactive marketing, but with no outlet to express those desires creatively," says CEO Favale. "One of our primary goals from the outset was to make sure our platform offers a variety of vibrant experiences, from popular goods, tech and fashion to travel, that bring the ultimate style of each video directly into a subscriber's everyday life."
Subscribers purchase clothing, accessories, event tickets - even book travel - for a 'live' first-hand experience based on the videos they select on the versatile platform. The company is currently in full operation in over 130 countries with a permanent presence in London and New York. Ms Favale is set to speak at WGSN in London in May and at Intersect Fashion in New York in June.
"We're extremely pleased with the success of this first round. It shows we have strong support and that the platform is really making a presence both online and offline among investors who believe in the dynamic potential and longevity this company has," said Favale.
Blingby is currently available on the web at www.blingby.com and as an Android or iOS mobile app through Google Play and iTunes.
